Another Marvel Studios Actor Not So Quietly Protests Vaccine Mandates

We are beyond disappointed to share the news that another Marvel Studios star is apparently anti-vaccine mandates. Perhaps you’ll recall reports that Leticia Wright, star of “Black Panther,” shared numerous links and posts attributed to anti-vax sentiments. She urged people to “ask questions” before getting any Covid-19 vaccines, despite overwhelming evidence that Various outlets suggested Wright’s stance led to production on “Black Panther 2” being shut down/delayed.

Wright has since refuted the reports that any of her on-set conduct had resulted in delays.

In a post to her personal Instagram account, the “LOST” star said:

I was in DC this weekend to support bodily sovereignty while Canadian truckers were rallying for their cross-country, peaceful convoy in support of the same thing.
I believe nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything,

against their will, under threat of:
-violent attack
-arrest or detention without trial
-loss of employment
-loss of education
-alienation from loved ones
-excommunication from society
…under any threat whatsoever.
This is not the way. This is not safe. This is not healthy. This is not love. I understand the world is in fear, but I don’t believe that answering fear with force will fix our problems.
I was pro choice before COVID and I am still pro choice today.

We can’t believe we have to say this 2 years into this entire mess. But please, get vaccinated. Wear your masks.
